It´s time for a challenge

Hello, dears!

Please raise your hand those who want to lose weight! I don´t know what a typical summer vacation is like where you live, but in Galicia, we spend the summer eating from party to party. By the end of the summer, we all need to lose weight.

Have you eaten too much this summer? Maybe you´re more Galician than you think.  No worries, my friend, between party and party, I have been preparing this new challenge for this moment.

Home workouts to help you get back in shape from home. You only need dumbbells, a Swiss ball and less than 30 minutes. The challenge also includes some nutritional advice.

We could say it starts at hangover/inactive level and it gets harder with time.

Each workout is an Evernote note. I strongly recommend you:

  1. Use Evernote.
  2. Copy the notes to your account and edit them. Write down how many reps and how much weight. Add your comments and meals.
  3. Save this challenge to compare and track your progress in the future.
  4. Eat your veggies 😉

 

 

30 healthy squid recipes

Squid is eaten worldwide. Depending on where squid is hunted and prepared the types of meals that can be made by them can vary significantly. They may be steamed or fried and eaten alone or mixed into a salad.

These are some interesting nutritional facts:

  1. Squids contain sufficient copper that fulfills the 90% of the body’s requirement. Copper, being a trace mineral, is essential for absorbing, storing and metabolizing iron and stimulating the formation of red blood cells.
  2. Individuals suffering from rheumatoid arthritis are often found to have low selenium levels in their blood. Since squids have an abundance of this mineral, it helps in relieving symptoms of arthritis and controlling damage caused by free radicals.
  3. Squids contain large amounts of phosphorus, similar to fish and shrimps. This mineral is necessary for stimulating calcium and building the bones and teeth.
  4. Squids help in stabilizing sugar levels in the blood due to an increased supply of vitamin B3 to the body.

Check these 30 healthy recipes, you´ll find new ideas to prepare squid.

30 healthy turkey recipes

Meat is a valuable source of protein and other nutrients. But when it comes to a healthy diet, it’s important to choose the right kind of meat and eat the correct portion size. Turkey is a relatively inexpensive source of protein, with more protein per gram than both chicken and beef, while remaining lower in fat and cholesterol than other meats. It also delivers vitamins and minerals.

Here are some key points about turkey meat:

  • Eighty-five grams of roasted turkey breast contains around 125.
  • In contrast, 85 grams of roasted dark turkey meat contains around 147 calories.
  • The dark meat of turkey typically contains more vitamins and minerals.
  • Turkey breast meat contains fewer calories and fat than most other cuts of meat.
  • Turkey contains vitamins B-6 and B-12, niacin, choline, selenium, and zinc.
  • Processed turkey meat can have a high sodium content.
  • Pasture-raised turkeys typically have higher omega-3 content than factory-farmed turkeys.

In this public notebook, you´ll find some of my favorite turkey recipes.

30 healthy chicken recipes

Chicken is the most common type of poultry in the world. There is significant variation in cooking methods amongst cultures. Historically common methods include roasting, baking, and frying. They are also often grilled for salads or tacos.

Whether you’re trying to build muscle or lose fat, chicken is included in your diet. I know by experience that eating chicken over and over again, cooked the same way, may be boring to death.

I´ve selected 30 of the most delicious chicken recipes from my notes (recipes are not my own). A different way to cook your chicken, each day of the month. A 30-recipes post would be hard to read so, you have all the recipes in this public notebook.

I like to add checkboxes to the ingredients. I go to the kitchen with my list and I check I have everything I need. If not, that goes to the grocery list. At cooking time, all checkboxes are marked so, I unmark them as I´m using the ingredients. Once it´s done, the check boxes are ready for the next time.

Automatically save your activities in Evernote

There are many apps and activity trackers. This picture shows a few:
ifttt fitness services
Even when every app saves your activities, I could think a couple of reasons you should save them in Evernote too.
I have used Withings, Nike+, MapMyWalk, and Strava. In theory, if I want to check my progress, I have to enter every account, and that´s a mess.
I´ve saved all my workouts and activities in Evernote so I have all of them in one place, which saves me a lot of time. Plus, I can edit these notes and add any additional info I want, tags, etc.
Maybe the best part is you don´t need to save your workouts manually. Integration apps like IFTTT or Zapier do it for you, connecting your favorite apps and saving you a valuable time.
As an example, today we´re going to connect Strava to Evernote and Strava and save any new activity.
First, go to ifttt.com and get started.
ifttt 1
You may sign with Google or Facebook.
ifttt 2
This is the dashboard.
ifttt 3
Search for Strava. Authorize IFTTT if needed.
ifttt 4
Click on My Applets -> New Applet
ifttt 5
A New Applet looks like this.
Click on +this
ifttt 6
Choose a service, Strava.
ifttt 7
Choose a trigger,  New activity by you
ifttt 8
Which activity? Any.
Then click “Create Trigger”. We´re almost there.
ifttt 9
Every time you create a new activity on Strava, IFTTT is going to do what?
Click on +that
ifttt 10
Choose action service, Evernote.
Authorize if needed.
ifttt 11
Choose action, Create a note
ifttt 12
We can customize our future notes, title, info included in the note, notebook, and tags.
IFTTT call all these “ingredients”.

ifttt 13

Click on Create action.
Click Finish and it´s done.

Evernote Walking Challenge

It´s no secret I love walking. Walking has several physical and mental benefits: reduces stress, controls blood sugar levels, boosts the immune system, burns fat and more.

You can lose body fat and get in shape through walking alone. Often, sedentary people choose intense workouts when they want to get in shape. Big mistake. It’s hard to stick to an intense routine if you’ve been out on the couch for a long time. You need a routine first. Intense routines come later.

It´s no secret I love Evernote, the place to organize your work, declutter your life, and remember everything. As you know, Evernote has endless applications, and I use it to deliver personalized training and meal plans, all over the world,  and easily keep track of my clients´ daily progress.

I´m excited to announce my first fitness challenge on Evernote. This walking challenge will build discipline that will help you stay in shape for the rest of your life. Don’t wait until Monday or next month to start this challenge, start today!

First, you need an Evernote account to share your training notes with me and get advice. Download it here, and make sure to download it to all your devices. No worries, there is a free version of Evernote available. This challenge won´t cost you any money, but if you think Evernote is useful and want a paid version, you´re very welcome.

If you already are an Evernote user, let me know in the comment section.

No matter the activity tracker or app you use, you can save it (and much more) in Evernote with no effort. I´ll show you how to do it.

Once you get your account, I give you access to a notebook where you share your daily walks. I share mine, as well as advice on walking and Evernote. Private chat is available for your questions and concerns about training and how to use Evernote.

Also, an exclusive Facebook group with healthy recipes where you´ll meet more participants in a distended ambient. I think we have it all to reach your goals as you have fun.

This is “The Moment” when you chose a more healthy lifestyle. Download the app and let´s get started!

Evernote Community Leader

Hellooo, beautiful people!

Huge Breaking News! I´ve received an email this morning. It begins:

“Thank you so much for participating in the Evernote Community Leader training. I really appreciate you working through the exercises and for your patience as we’ve been reviewing everyone’s exercises!

So… here’s where we get to the most important part of the program – your results. The Evernote team has spent time reviewing your final exercise, and I’m happy to say that you’re now an Evernote Community Leader – officially!…”

[…]”

What is Evernote? It´s a productivity tool which helps you meet your professional and personal goals. People around the world use Evernote for education, research, project planning, small business, personal organization, and of course, blogging. A few years ago, I saw a great potential on Evernote for fitness, and I started to work on it. Today, I understand this app is practically limitless, and I´m proud to say I can teach anyone how to use Evernote for fitness. This also means other trainers, clubs, gyms…

Chape´s method is about to change the fitness industry! Do you imagine sharing a digital notebook with your trainer/client where you both what´s done, what´s not, workouts, meals, articles and research papers, reports from other apps, always at hand? Yes, heaven on earth.

But this post is just to let you know that we´re going to talk much more about how to use Evernote for fitness. As you imagine, this designation comes with some extra work, redesigning a little bit the website, writing new content, developing new services and some other things I´m sure I´ll find out I need to do in the process. So, I´m going to take a break from posting exercises until I have these new tasks done. I´ll keep posting the daily quote because I have a personal goal in mind, two years of daily quotes. The first years was easy, and I think I can´t find quotes for three. I´ll be good with two, and I hope you too 🙂

 Speaking of quotes, do you want to know which is my very favorite?

“The best is yet to be.” Robert Browning

I know I should say have a great day but, I´m so joyful right now, I have to wish you a great decade ahead, it´s how I really feel it.

Big hugs!!
